Default Greg Warren

It appears that we lost our long snapper for the rest of the season on the final play of the game yesterday. Guys like that generally get overlooked, but that could prove to be huge for us...(having flashbacks to James Harrison long snapping in the Giants Game in '08)

Hopefully, we'll sign somebody this time instead of trying Harrison again.

Look for Retofsky to be signed. Worst case scenario is that Doug Legursky has also worked out long snapping, so you will probably never see Harrison in there doing that again.

You don't know what you got till it's gone, tough break for Greg (again!). I hope he can come back (again). He has been a rock over the years, in a sometimes questionable special teams unit.

I remember being at camp Greg's first year, and someone in our group got his autograph,(for their brother who wasn't there), as a joke, they thought he was free agent "Camp Fodder', boy were they wrong!

I re-watched that last play to see what happened... He basically got steamrolled on both sides, and folded in half. ouch!

Way to take one for the team, Greg! If in the improbable event we make the playoffs, I think we should dedicate them to him.

Bring on A.Q. Shipley. Hometown boy could come up big for the Black 'N Gold. They'll most likely sign a proven long-snapper as opposed to promoting Shipley from the practice squad but it'd be interesting to see that happen. Followed A.Q through High School and College. His size always gets knocked but he proved he could play very well at a major Division 1-A school.

I watched that XP in slow motion. The guy to his right (Willie Colon) got run over and fell on his knee as he was trying to go left.
